GWCC's new 1,000,000 sq. of contiguous space now open

ATLANTA, Georgia – (January 28, 2020) The Georgia World Congress Center Authority (GWCCA) celebrated the opening of their new Exhibit Hall.  


The 140,000-square-foot Exhibit Hall BC, which is the Authority’s first major expansion in 18 years, serves as a fixed passageway between Building B and C and creates over one-million square feet of seamless exhibit space. Exhibit Hall BC serves as a catalyst for next level growth for the GWCCA campus, as the agency aims to continue to attract the country’s largest conventions.  

The $56 million project began in September 2018 and was completed ahead of schedule and under budget. Funded through general obligation bonds approved by the Georgia General Assembly, this new addition is expected to produce an estimated economic impact of more than $600 million.
